    Second visit to the restaurant t in three weeks,both times with friends. Not that impressed the first time but a big improvement this time. Thought the food was better (new menu) and service better though a bit slow - drinks only came the starter was being served. We went for the set price 3 course menu. There are three choices per course but one of each has a supplement so that is annoying. It makes it more expensive (I already think it is bit over-priced) and of course they add on an additional 12.5% service charge. We sat outside and the weather was fantastic so that made the ambience.

    We enjoyed our lunch outside on a pleasant day .the metal seating requires cushions . The service was good and staff were attentive . My only criticism would be the menu is too small and the set meal ( which we didn’t have ) was too small . The quality of the food was excellent , but the value was average .

    Starter and desert were excellent but waited hour for main course. Two had ordered roasts and both had the Yorkshire puddings missing had to ask and received 2 between us instead of 2 each. No offer of any condiments although again received when asked. Standard of main courses not up to rest of meal

    Nice relaxed surroundings. Enjoyed a full English. Sadly the bacon had uncooked fat on both plates. Also giving one portion of a small cube of butter for two people ? Surely at least two should be handed out. Orange juice ordered but never arrived, yet still appeared on bill so had to ask for it to be removed.

    Tea was nice but not huge. 4 finger sandwiches, one plain and one fruit scone each and 4 tiny cakes - plus a tea or coffee so just about enough but not the greatest value.

    Have had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Terrace Restaurant and decided to celebrate with some friends there and have the afternoon tea. It was an incredibly hot day yesterday (17th July) and we were dithering whether to sit inside or outside, but the staff could not have been more helpful! The tea is excellent value for money and the scones were the lightest I have had for a while! This was the first time, post-Covid we have been able to celebrate with them on their birthday and the staff made the whole afternoon a lovely experience.

    Service was very slow, 1 hour 45 minutes for two courses, although to be fair we weren't in a hurry. The glass of white wine to accompany the fish was served nearly an hour before the fish arrived. The fish was charged extra but was only a small fillet.

    We had an enjoyable tea for 4. Plenty of space, comfortable chairs, clean and spacious room. Sandwiches were delicious, and a decent size and selection. The scones were fresh, warm and tasty. The cakes were ok, but a little small maybe……for the price? Having said that, after sandwiches and scones, we didn’t need much more, so perhaps it’s just that for £22 you might expect a more generous helping - it is Afternoon Tea after all! The tea itself was good, and I’m sure if we’d needed more we would have been given a top-up - we had no probs getting extra clotted cream! The staff were lovely, so although we felt the service charge was a tad much, we paid up and left having had a relaxing end to a very nice day at Wisley. I’d definitely recommend going.

    The two of us arrived at 11.45am and were told that the earliest available lunch booking was 2.30pm which we accepted. We arrived on-time and found the restaurant pretty empty and were informed that several items on the menu were unavailable. When we saw the menu it became clear that very few dishes were actually available. As this was a late lunch we were very hungry and ordered a risotto which subsequently proved disappointing. Our drinks were slow to arrive but this seemed not to be the fault of the waiter who appeared very efficient and helpful. For a large glass of Picpoul de Pinet wine (nothing very special) we were charged more than £14 which I regard as extortionate. Our very ordinary meal proved very expensive. RHS Wisley is a wonderful place, but on our next visit we'll try the cafes which all appeared very pleasant.

    We sat outside in perfect weather and service was excellent. Food was ok and decent value for money. We each had a large glass of wine at £11.95 which was a bit expensive which with the £10+ service charge added to the total cost. Overall a very pleasant meal I a relaxed setting.

    The Restaurant is set in beautiful surrounding and I had taken my Mother for her 85th birthday. The service was very poor, the meal took forever to be served. Our reservation was 1.45pm and we were only eating after 3pm - over an hour to be served. When the meal arrived it was not warm and some of it was incorrect. We were terribly disappointed. We had, had a wonderful morning and this marred the occasion. The server understood we were disappointed and discounted the bill but that is never the point when we wanted to have a lovely lunch. Next time I come to RHS Wisley I will bring a picnic lunch.
